The Liberty Tree Memorial

To the editor:

The Liberty Tree Memorial planting and plaque dedication at Fort Stamford on July 4 was a very successful event. For me, it was a wonderful experience and the weather could not have been better. I would like to thank all those who attended for their support and contributions. Without all of you, the event would not have been a success.

I would like to personally thank Mayor Dannel Malloy, his cabinet, constituents and all the residents of Stamford. Without their support this event could not have taken place.

In addition, I would like to send out a very special thank you to the following for their support and participation. Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele; Attorney General Richard Blumenthal; city Director of Operations Benjamin Barnes; the Stamford Fire Department with Chief Robert McGrath and the firefighters who participated with their ladder truck and American flag assembly; the Stamford Police Department and officers who attended; state Reps. Gerald Fox III, William Tong and Patricia Miller; Stamford Administrative Services Bureau Chief Michael Docimo; Parks Department personnel; Monsignor John Squiller from Saint Basil's College; Veterans of Foreign Wars Springdale Post 9617; American Legion Post 3; The Sea Cadets; Cub Scouts Pack 28 Roxbury School; Springdale Florists; Homer Lee Wise Memorial Committee, Mr. James Vlasto; European Deli, Mrs. Zofia Brice; Frankie's Hot Dog Truck, Mr. Frank Moretti; the audio system from Mr. John Nestor; Mr. Tony Panaro; Mr. Dino Milioti; Mr. Emilio Funicella; Mr. Tony Uva; Mr. Carmine Vaccaro.
